Western Isles

We had our first successful meeting earlier this year 2022 and its that that time of year when we are getting past the Summer and almost into Autumn. Sign up to come along to our next network meeting and find out more about intergenerational work in your area.

GWT have recently recruited a new volunteer network coordinator for the Western Isles, who has kindly offered her time and experience and skills to take part in a volunteer role. We welcome Vicki Manchester and look forward to getting involved and explore intergenerational practice in your local area.
